This is beyond ridiculous. Bush is going to close the deal in the day or two, regardless of this phony 45 day review of the entire deal. Someone in Congress better go nuts on this now.
Dubai Ports World's $6.85 billion acquisition of Britain's P&O will close on Friday or Monday, despite an additional 45-day review by the U.S. government in response to security concerns, a U.S. Treasury Department official said on Thursday.Bush is such a liar. They're going ahead with the deal anyway. I really hope Schumer and the other members of Congress who were so outspoken about this issue weigh in on Friday and go nuts. This is such an act of bad faith by Bush. I know I shouldn't be amazed, but I really am.
